22{OT many miles from where Tottie lived, in the old

§ farm-house we have told you about in another of
Tottie’s books, there was a famous watering place.
Every autumn Tottie was taken to breathe the
pure fresh air, and play in the beautiful unbroken sunshine
of this charming sea coast. There were the most pleasant
of sands, stretching away smoothly down to where the
bright waves were rolling and curling and casting ‘their
gems of pebbles, and shells, and pretty sea-weeds, to your
feet.

Tottie used to see with delight the great ships, with their
mighty wings, glidig over the sea, and the little fishing
boats tossing over the waves; and the great steamers
cleaving their way through the quiet waters, which they
threw scornfully aside with their great paddle-wheels, as if
in forgetfulness of the terrible power of that mighty sea
when it grew angry and the storms came.

Tottie, with her great blue eyes wide open, used to
wonder what made the restless waves always rise and fall,
and whether the swift sea-birds did not sometimes get tired






and fall into the deep water; and whether, when they did
fall, they were like the ducks in her pond at-home, and
could swim. :

She used to have such merry games with the waves and
_ her own two dimpled naked feet. The waves would run
away from those rosy little feet, and Tottie would laugh,
oh! so merrily, as the feet ran after them. And the waves
would run after her darling little feet, and the nimble little
feet would run back, Tottie laughing still. The waves used
to throw its pebbles and shells after her as she ran away, .
and that made her laugh. The waves used sometimes to
sprinkle her with its spray, and that made her laugh louder;
~ and sometimes the waves would overtake those pretty little
feet, and bathe her dear little legs right up over her dimpled
knees, and that made her laugh the loudest.

It was such a merry, merry time, and oh! how Tottie
did love her new playmate, the beautiful bright green sea!

LITTLE TOTTIE IN THE GARDENS,

' At the seaside where Tottie was staying with her
mamma and papa, there were such delightful gardens.
There were great horse-chestnut trees cut into arches; there
were beds of bright gay flowers, and broad gravel walks; and
in the centre there was the large hotel in which they were
stopping, such a fine building, with more windows than you

could count, with a dome-shaped roof on the highest part

of it, with railings all round its top, and a flag flying which
was altered every day. One day it was a French flag, and
on the next it was an English flag, and on the third day it
was a German flag, and so on.

Little Tottie looked lovingly at the gay flowers, and
wonderingly at the great grand hotel, and was delighted to
find so many merry little companions in its gardens. She
used to run up and down the steps of the terraces, and
wheel her dolly about in a smart new perambulator, and
dance to.the music of her own merry laughter, and be as
happy and light-hearted as the summer days were bright
and long, Wherever she went she found something to love
and admire, so wherever she went Tottie was happy. If she
had only looked for things that were unpleasant and not to
be admired, of course she could have found them and been
miserable, but little Tottie wanted to be merry and happy,
and so she did not look for such things, and not looking for
such things, so she did not find them, Between you and
me and the post, this was very wise of Little Tottie.

— SEDI aieee—

LITTLE TOTTIE’'S WORLD OF WONDERS.

On the sea-beach Tottie found no end of wonders. It
was all so fresh and new to her, that she didn’t know
which of all the wonderful things she saw was most
wonderful. It was Wonder Land to Tottie. The great white
cliffs were strange and wonderful. 'Tottie used to wonder



who the wonderful people were who made them tower up so
very strong and so very high. She admired greatly too the
wisdom of whoever made them, because they kept the whole
of that “great, great, great—oh! ever so great’ sea from
coming up over the dry land where the houses were built
for people to live in. The great solemn roar which came up
with the waves when they rose higher than usual, and their
tops were white with foam, used to make her wonder; and
she used to wonder how the sun got alight again in the
morning, after it had gone right down over its head into the
water on the evening before, making the waves all red
because it was so hot. She used to wonder at the noise
in some of the shells when papa put them to her ear, it was
so like the distant murmur of the sea. She used to wonder
at the varied forms and colours of the seaweeds; and she
used to wonder and laugh at and pity the poor little baby
crabs who had strayed away from their mammas and papas,
and were so frightened of her great little feet that they

would scramble along quite frantically, and get right down
under the sand out of their way. She used to wonder
whether some of the seaweed crackled so when she walked
on it because it was angry with her for doing so. She used
to wonder why, and how, when that seaweed was hung up
at home, it told them that the wet weather was coming, or
when the dry warm weather was going to leave us.







STORIES TOLD ON THE BEACH.

In another of these Tottie stories we spoke of our little
heroine’s nursemaid, Polly, and told you how Polly was once
in the service of a family who travelled in foreign lands,
taking Polly with them. Now, when Tottie was tired of
running and dancing, laughing and singing; looking for new
wonders, and gathering the pretty shells cast up by the
waves, she used to sit down on the beach beside Polly, who
used to tell her nice little stories about the foreign lands she
had seen.

- One of these stories was about the Pyrenees. “In these
ereat high mountains,’ Polly began.

“ Not so high as these,” said Tottie, pomting to the cliffs
behind them.

“Oh! ever and ever and EVER so much higher,” said
Polly, boldly, raising her voice every time she said “ever,”
and lifting her hands higher and higher as if even the bare
remembrance of their height astonished her.

Then Tottie looked from Polly’s raised hands to the top
of the cliff behind them, and her lips parted and her eyes
opened wider and rounder in silent wonder.

“T remember our going up among these high mountains
once,” said Polly; “our little girl had a donkey, and her ma
and her aunt had horses. Master walked, and so did I. We
had two guides. We rode through a place called Asté, and
past a ruined castle, and up a road so steep that I thought
we should never get to the top of it. But when we did get





to the top of it—oh my! what a sight that was to see!
There was a mountain going right up into the sky. The
next path we went up was too steep for the horses to climb,
so we had to leave them, with the donkey, in the care of a
boy whom the guides had brought with them. Then we
went slowly up, up, up, oh! ever and ever so high, until we
all got so tired, except Minnie—that was my little girl’s name
then—for she was carried—that we were obliged to sit down
by the roadside in a forest, and have a long rest.”

~Tottie listened wonderingly to all this. “I went up a
great hill like that once,” said she. “It was when we went
to London. It wasin Greenwich Park.”

Then Polly burst out laughing.

“At last,” said Polly, “we got to a little town in the
mountains, and very stiff and tired we all were, and very
glad we all were to get to bed, I can tell you.”

“Ah! that’s just lke us,” said Tottie; “how tired I
was when we went to that mountain in Greenwich Park!”

POLLY AT ROME.

Amongst other stories told to Tottie on the sea beach
by Polly was that of how Polly was once taken by her
master and mistress to Rome, and what she saw there.

Tottie used to listen intently to all her little nursemaid
said about the great and beautiful stone palaces, and
temples, and theatres, which were all so grand and wonder-









































Strasburgh, print, G. Silbermann



IN THE PYRENEES:



ful, but all so desolate and in ruins. It used to puzzle her
to hear how trees grew on the tops and out of the sides
of the broken walls, which were so rugged, and thick, and
strong, that they looked like rocks. She wondered why
people let the dust of hundreds of years remain until it was
piled up so high that great halls and lofty rooms were all
buried under it deep down out of sight; and she wanted to
know why people let the grass grow over the broken frag-
ments of stone which was cut and beautifully carved by the
people who died, “O! ever and ever so long ago—hundreds
upon hundreds of years before Our Saviour was born,” as
Polly said’ x

Tottie used to think what a very long way a mile is to
walk when Polly told her of a street in Rome, called the
Corso, which is a mile long, and then she used to wonder
what that street would look like if she could only see it.
And when she did this her sweet little baby face would look
so uncomfortably wise, that it used to make Polly laugh and
give Tottie a hearty kiss. It was so funny.

Tottie quite envied Polly when Polly told her about the
wonderful Roman picture galleries she saw, and gave glowing
accounts of the grand old paintings and statues. And Tottie
grew quite bewildered when she heard about the Vatican,
about staircases—“ O! ever and ever so wide!’—running
out here and in there, and up, and down, and in every direc-
tion to and from immensely large lofty rooms, some in front,
some on each side, and some behind, and some mm every
direction, opening one into another, “just like a maze.’ ,

Then Polly used to tell of the country round Zabout
Rome, of miles upon miles of ruins, arches, pillars, and
broken walls, in endless numbers; of lovely lakes and rivers,



beautiful woods, and wild, rocky caves; of lofty mountains
and flashing waterfalls; and of the great sea beyond them
all, lying still and calm and deeply blue in the bright hot
sunlight. How Tottie loved to hear of such things, to be
sure! She used to listen and look into the sky until she
fancied she could see all of them in the clouds; until going
home and to bed they came back to her in confused dreams,

which were all gone and upeoeneen long before waking-up
time came in the morning.

Polly used to tell her ed alec the people, and how lazy
they seemed, and how fond they were of sitting and lolling
about on the grass in the sunshine, some of them with
pretty little dark-skinned babies, such as you may see in our
next picture of Roman peasants; and Tottie was as well
pleased to hear about such things as she was about the
ruins, and the streets, and the Vatican, and the picture
galleries, and all the other things which Polly had to tell
about that great and ancient city called Rome. _/—

mamma and papa, there were such delightful gardens.
There were great horse-chestnut trees cut into arches; there
were beds of bright gay flowers, and broad gravel walks; and

of it, with railings all round its top, and a flag flying which
was altered every day. One day it was a French flag, and
on the next it was an English flag, and on the third day it
was a German flag, and so on.

Little Tottie looked lovingly at the gay flowers, and
wonderingly at the great grand hotel, and was delighted to
find so many merry little companions in its gardens. She
used to run up and down the steps of the terraces, and
wheel her dolly about in a smart new perambulator, and
dance to.the music of her own merry laughter, and be as
happy and light-hearted as the summer days were bright
and long, Wherever she went she found something to love
and admire, so wherever she went Tottie was happy. If she
had only looked for things that were unpleasant and not to
be admired, of course she could have found them and been
miserable, but little Tottie wanted to be merry and happy,
and so she did not look for such things, and not looking for
such things, so she did not find them, Between you and
me and the post, this was very wise of Little Tottie.

— SEDI aieee—

LITTLE TOTTIE’'S WORLD OF WONDERS.

On the sea-beach Tottie found no end of wonders. It
was all so fresh and new to her, that she didn’t know
which of all the wonderful things she saw was most
wonderful. It was Wonder Land to Tottie. The great white
cliffs were strange and wonderful. 'Tottie used to wonder
who the wonderful people were who made them tower up so
very strong and so very high. She admired greatly too the
wisdom of whoever made them, because they kept the whole
of that “great, great, great—oh! ever so great’ sea from
coming up over the dry land where the houses were built
for people to live in. The great solemn roar which came up
with the waves when they rose higher than usual, and their
tops were white with foam, used to make her wonder; and
she used to wonder how the sun got alight again in the
morning, after it had gone right down over its head into the
water on the evening before, making the waves all red
because it was so hot. She used to wonder at the noise
in some of the shells when papa put them to her ear, it was
so like the distant murmur of the sea. She used to wonder
at the varied forms and colours of the seaweeds; and she
used to wonder and laugh at and pity the poor little baby
crabs who had strayed away from their mammas and papas,
and were so frightened of her great little feet that they

would scramble along quite frantically, and get right down
under the sand out of their way. She used to wonder
whether some of the seaweed crackled so when she walked
on it because it was angry with her for doing so. She used
to wonder why, and how, when that seaweed was hung up
at home, it told them that the wet weather was coming, or
when the dry warm weather was going to leave us.




STORIES TOLD ON THE BEACH.

In another of these Tottie stories we spoke of our little
heroine’s nursemaid, Polly, and told you how Polly was once
in the service of a family who travelled in foreign lands,
taking Polly with them. Now, when Tottie was tired of
running and dancing, laughing and singing; looking for new
wonders, and gathering the pretty shells cast up by the
waves, she used to sit down on the beach beside Polly, who
used to tell her nice little stories about the foreign lands she
had seen.

- One of these stories was about the Pyrenees. “In these
ereat high mountains,’ Polly began.

“ Not so high as these,” said Tottie, pomting to the cliffs
behind them.

“Oh! ever and ever and EVER so much higher,” said
Polly, boldly, raising her voice every time she said “ever,”
and lifting her hands higher and higher as if even the bare
remembrance of their height astonished her.

Then Tottie looked from Polly’s raised hands to the top
of the cliff behind them, and her lips parted and her eyes
opened wider and rounder in silent wonder.

“T remember our going up among these high mountains
once,” said Polly; “our little girl had a donkey, and her ma
and her aunt had horses. Master walked, and so did I. We
had two guides. We rode through a place called Asté, and
past a ruined castle, and up a road so steep that I thought
we should never get to the top of it. But when we did get


to the top of it—oh my! what a sight that was to see!
There was a mountain going right up into the sky. The
next path we went up was too steep for the horses to climb,
so we had to leave them, with the donkey, in the care of a
boy whom the guides had brought with them. Then we
went slowly up, up, up, oh! ever and ever so high, until we
all got so tired, except Minnie—that was my little girl’s name
then—for she was carried—that we were obliged to sit down
by the roadside in a forest, and have a long rest.”

~Tottie listened wonderingly to all this. “I went up a
great hill like that once,” said she. “It was when we went
to London. It wasin Greenwich Park.”

Then Polly burst out laughing.

“At last,” said Polly, “we got to a little town in the
mountains, and very stiff and tired we all were, and very
glad we all were to get to bed, I can tell you.”

“Ah! that’s just lke us,” said Tottie; “how tired I
was when we went to that mountain in Greenwich Park!”

POLLY AT ROME.

Amongst other stories told to Tottie on the sea beach
by Polly was that of how Polly was once taken by her
master and mistress to Rome, and what she saw there.

Tottie used to listen intently to all her little nursemaid
said about the great and beautiful stone palaces, and
temples, and theatres, which were all so grand and wonder-

ful, but all so desolate and in ruins. It used to puzzle her
to hear how trees grew on the tops and out of the sides
of the broken walls, which were so rugged, and thick, and
strong, that they looked like rocks. She wondered why
people let the dust of hundreds of years remain until it was
piled up so high that great halls and lofty rooms were all
buried under it deep down out of sight; and she wanted to
know why people let the grass grow over the broken frag-
ments of stone which was cut and beautifully carved by the
people who died, “O! ever and ever so long ago—hundreds
upon hundreds of years before Our Saviour was born,” as
Polly said’ x

Tottie used to think what a very long way a mile is to
walk when Polly told her of a street in Rome, called the
Corso, which is a mile long, and then she used to wonder
what that street would look like if she could only see it.
And when she did this her sweet little baby face would look
so uncomfortably wise, that it used to make Polly laugh and
give Tottie a hearty kiss. It was so funny.

Tottie quite envied Polly when Polly told her about the
wonderful Roman picture galleries she saw, and gave glowing
accounts of the grand old paintings and statues. And Tottie
grew quite bewildered when she heard about the Vatican,
about staircases—“ O! ever and ever so wide!’—running
out here and in there, and up, and down, and in every direc-
tion to and from immensely large lofty rooms, some in front,
some on each side, and some behind, and some mm every
direction, opening one into another, “just like a maze.’ ,

Then Polly used to tell of the country round Zabout
Rome, of miles upon miles of ruins, arches, pillars, and
broken walls, in endless numbers; of lovely lakes and rivers,
beautiful woods, and wild, rocky caves; of lofty mountains
and flashing waterfalls; and of the great sea beyond them
all, lying still and calm and deeply blue in the bright hot
sunlight. How Tottie loved to hear of such things, to be
sure! She used to listen and look into the sky until she
fancied she could see all of them in the clouds; until going
home and to bed they came back to her in confused dreams,

which were all gone and upeoeneen long before waking-up
